Try Stampin on Tuesday #99

Hi there and Happy New Year

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year.  We managed to stay up and see the New Year in.  We did our own countdown as they no longer seem to have them on the TV.  We had a lovely BBQ with family and friends and then sat around chatting and laughing.  It was a great evening.  New Year's Day saw the sun out in full force so we had our first picnic (along with half of Auckland) up in Cornwall Park.  It was so lovely.  In the evening we went for a walk along the waterfront where the other half of Auckland were.  It was great seeing so many people out enjoying the summer weather.

Now on to this week's sketch challenge.  I love this layout that Jenn gave us - it just fell into place so easily.

I decided to get out a set that hadn't seen ink/crayons for some time.  I love water colouring images and this set is a favourite of mine for this technique.  I used Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum as my colour base - straight from the colour coach.

Stamp - Bordering on Romance, Pennant Parade
Card Stock - Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink - Black Stazon, Elegant Eggplant
Other - Watercolour Crayons, Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Adorning Accents Edgelits

I also made an altered pad and pen to go with the card:

Stamp - Word Play
Card Stock - Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink - Elegant Eggplant
DSP - Floral District
Other - Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon, Apothecary Accents Framelit

For those of you 'Down Under' I hope you are enjoying the summer weather while it's here!
Catch you back soon with some more crafting.
